The Haller Fountain

The Haller Fountain

The Haller Fountain in Port Townsend was donated to the town of Port Townsend by Theodore N. Haller. It had first been displayed at the Chicago Exhibition of 1893. Locally known as the Galatea Fountain (after the sea nymph represented).

As a side note: Haller Lake is a small lake (15 acres, 36 feet maximum depth) in the north end of Seattle, not too far from where I grew up. For a number of years, I attended Haller Lake Methodist Church and had the opportunity to occasionally swim in the lake. It was named after Theodore developed lake front plots in 1905. It wasn’t until I was researching this image that I discovered the connection.
